There are so many things to do here from snorkeling with sea turtles, sharks, rays, and tropical fish to hiking up to view points and through lava fields. But the Galapagos are also very expensive, have lots of regulations, and take a long time to get to. So was all the wildlife and scenery worth the time and expense? Check out the full blog post of our visit here.

Mexico City Is Not At All Like What We Expected

Though we really wanted to see Mexico City and experience its art and culture, we were also kind of afraid to come because we had heard so many negative and scary things about it. But Mexico City is absolutely amazing! It's full of tree-lined streets, great food, and ancient ruins. Mexico City is definitely worth traveling to! Check out the full blog posts here.
